First and foremost, I need to thank everyone who has reached out over the past couple days. Your phone calls, blog comments, facebook messages, and emails have completely blown me away. I feel very, very lucky to have such an awesome support system. It’s definitely making this transition a bit easier to deal with.
A few of you said that you had guessed something like this was going on since I hadn’t blogged in a while. You know me too well.
Honestly, I’m doing a lot better than I thought I would be. Thanks to all of my amazing girlfriends, and my loving family, I’d say that I’m feeling ok, and even a bit hopeful for the future, 80% of the time. I could be better the other 20%, but that’s to be expected. I know it will all even out with time.
The other day, an old friend of mine told me that I’ve always made the best out of negative situations. For some reason, I felt flattered.
I’m really trying to look at all this as a learning experience. Sure, it hurts like hell right now, but I truly believe things happen for a reason. I know this experience is going to help me grow, and become stronger. I am going to learn new things about myself that I probably never would have learned if this hadn’t happened. I know that with time I’m going to be fine—great, even. I’m not worried, and you shouldn’t be either. 🙂
If the picture I’m about to show you is any indication of how ok I’ve been feeling, you really shouldn’t be worried:
Last night, my friend, Danielle, and I took our friend, Dara, out for her birthday.
We went to Harry’s Burritos in Nyack.
I suggested Harry’s for Dara’s birthday because they have good margaritas, and an awesome menu:
I love the No Extra Charge Healthy Substitution section.
Before we ordered, we took some mandatory birthday pictures:
Then it was time to stuff our faces. I ordered–SURPRISE–tacos, not a burrito. (Call the police!)
I asked for whole wheat tortillas, black beans, and brown rice. They were delicious.
After dinner, we stopped for ice cream, but I didn’t take a picture, so you’ll just have to imagine. 🙂 Twas a fantastic night!
Today is Dara’s actual birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARA!! I’ve known Dara since preschool, and have celebrated A LOT of birthdays with her. She’s a great friend!
In other news, I’m off to clean my bathroom (yuck). It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.
Have a great Friday! <3
